The Sound of Silence
The sound of silence is all that remains now that I've dropped our guests back off at the airport. My sister, Marie, and her husband, Justin, came out to visit me and Ryan Thursday until Saturday. It was so great to see them, and we had so much fun. It was great for Ryan to have new people to play with him, and they provided me some free time. I forgot what it was like to have a conversation with my dinner. It was such a help having extra hands to watch Ryan when I did the regular everyday things like feeding the dogs or washing the dishes. We were sad to seem them go today and miss them already. The quiet in the house seemed overwhelming when we got back from the airport. I know it will only take a day or two to get back into our routine, and I'll get used to the silence again.
